The History & Revolution of eBusiness
Welcome to the brief history of eBusiness. What? Why brief?!
Don't worry, the Internet (er, world) is not coming to an end. In fact, it has just begun. Hence, the "brief" history.
Okay, so back to the history part. Hmmm, this is weird. If you do a search on "history of eBusiness" on the popular search engine, HotBot.com, you get a message saying... "Sorry, your search yielded no results." Same with most of the other popular search engines.
So eBiz4Teens is going to be the first to document the history of eBusiness, which we believe all started with Amazon.com.
Amazon.com opened their virtual doors in July of 1995. Their mission was to "use the Internet to offer products that educate, inform, and inspire". So they built their website, an online store that is customer friendly and easy to navigate. Oh yeah, and it currently offers 4.7 million, yes MILLION, books, CDs, audiobooks, DVDs, computer games, and more.
Now, Amazon.com's headquarters are in Seattle, Washinton, and it is also currently a public-traded company (NASDAQ: AMZN). Cool.

Ah yes. The Revolution of Business done on the Internet. eBusiness.
First came the wild idea of selling THINGS on the Internet.... Books, garden supplies, shoes, even cars! All from the quiet privacy of your own home. Heck, you could go shopping in your pajamas, and with your hair and teeth unbrushed.
So you have this great idea, and you come up with a name, logo, and slogan. You stake your "dot com" property, and then voila! You have a brand new eBusiness.
If you have an eBusiness that sells a service, such as web or graphic design, we can eliminate the need for a brick and mortar store front.
What is "brick and mortar"? I don't know, do you? So that means, we can even eliminate the need to KNOW what "brick and mortar" MEANS. Which is why the Internet is so fast.
Selling products that needed to be shipped to the client can prove to be more of a challenge then providing an online or digital service. Amazon.com set up warehouses, so that books could be shipped more efficiently. Garden.com talked to many different businesses and partnered with them to create the ultimate in buying garden supplies.
eBusiness brings out the true, creative entrepreneur in you. Being able to start a business for a small price, or even for free is very exciting.
Join the Revolution. Start an eBusiness.
